Millie, 19, who gave birth to daughter Ophelia in September, shared a trailer of the show on her Instagram to her 111,000 followers. 

In the clip, it is revealed the family goes through 56 sausages and 16 pints of milk a day, and spends a whopping £400 a week on shopping.

Despite the expenses, Sue gushes in the ad: “We love everything about having a big family.”

The new four-part series will show the challenges of lockdown for Noel and Sue, as they still have 19 children (and four dogs) living in their 10-bedroom home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

The hour-long episodes will feature the ups and downs of family life as Sue is tasked with months of home schooling nine children - all while looking after baby number 22, Heidie, who arrived last April.

And fans will see how things got tough for the family after their bakery had to close during lockdown when Noel got coronavirus.

Speaking of the new show, which starts on Monday, February 22 at 9pm, Noel and Sue Radford said: “We’re so pleased to be bringing the new series to Channel 5.

“This time, things were a little different. Coronavirus meant that our lives were turned upside down and, instead of a nice summer holiday, we had to do everything at home. 

“There was no escape! 

“But that’s the beauty of having such a big family, there’s always something happening and no one is ever lonely. 

“Of course, things did not always go smoothly and in this series, you will see everything that goes on in our busy home. 

“Just don’t get us started on that teen party or what it means to home school so many kids!”
